A seemingly innocent encounter changes her dream life into a nightmare.
Settled into her Texas home, Kate launches her genealogy business. Still living in the cabin, Alex racks up miles on his truck, driving to see her in Schatzenburg every chance he gets. A young, wealthy guy buys the house down the block from Kate and causes a stir. He lavishes her with attention, which leaves Alex questioning the motive.
Although she is happy, Kate wants more than a dinner-and-a-movie relationship. Loving the companionship, Alex wants her to trust him and plans a surprise party to make her birthday a special event.
When Kate is targeted but has no idea why, Alex moves into her extra room, only to learn he can't always protect her.
